A Campus Safety Colloquium will be hosted on 27-30 March 2019 at the Monkey Valley Resort in Noordhoek in Cape Town to be attended by delegates from the various colleges and universities.

The colloquium theme is “creating extraordinary experiences for student communities” with sub themes on crime in college and university campuses and towns/cities, the quality of student life in student towns and cities and student life curriculum design and development. Sub themes will also include sustainable graduate employment in the student economy and the role of municipalities in college and university towns/cities.

The Campus Safety Colloquium will also host the Launch of the new Campus and School Safety and Security Training Initiative (CASSSTI) Program. The CASSSTI Program is a customized training course for campus and school safety and security officers and includes Introductory Training Program for Campus and School Safety and Security Officers.

The course content focuses on Advanced Training Program for Campus and School Safety and Security Officers and Professional Training Program for Campus and School Safety and Security Officers

The CASSSTI Program was designed within the context of a learning institution and its unique needs for safety and security. In future it should become mandatory for any safety and security officer deployed at a site of learning – a school, academy, college or university – to be trained in the CASSSTI program to acquire the necessary competencies to handle any campus or school violation with professional efficacy.
